I recently purchased a Dell 926 printer when I was out of town, and it is turning out to be quite the bad decision, as I can't get my computer to detect the printer. I've already tried a number of things, including following Dell's install instructions, manually installing the print drivers, updating my chipset driver, updating my computer's bios, trying different usb ports, and purchasing a new usb cable. Besides this, I have also tried the printer on another computer with no luck. Unlike most usb devices, Windows does not notice that any new hardware has been added when I plug the printer in. Also, there are no unknown devices that appear in the device manager.
The computer on which I would really like the printer to work is a Dell Dimension 2300. It has Windows XP SP3 installed. Please let me know if there is any additional information that I can provide. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
